Following the Bandra Magistrate Court’s order, an FIR was filed against Kangana Ranaut and her sister Rangoli Chandel for sedition and promoting enmity between various religious groups. Mumbai police have now issued summon to both of them. Kangana and her sister have been asked to appear before the investigation officer on October 26 and 27.
Based on a complaint filed by the casting director and fitness trainer Munnawar Ali Sayyed, Bandra Magistrate Court had ordered registration of FIR against the Ranaut sisters. According to a report in Hindustan Times, a case was registered against the Ranaut sisters under Section 124 A (sedition), 153-A (promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion, race, place of birth, residence, language, prejudicial to maintenance of harmony) and 295-A (deliberate and malicious acts, intended to outrage religious feelings by insulting its religion) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
Reacting to the news of summons issued by the Mumbai police, Kangana took to her Twitter handle and once again taking a dig at Maharashtra government she wrote, “Obsessed penguin Sena … Pappupro of Maharashtra, bahut yaad aati hai k-k-k-k-k-Kangana, koi baat nahin jaldi aa jaungi(They are obsessed with me. They miss me so much. Don’t worry I will be there soon).”

Whereas previously Kangana’s lawyer Rizwan Siddiqui reacting on the Court’s order had tweeted, “Order passed by the Learned Magistrate shall be legally dealt with on “merits” as per the procedure of law. Right of speech & expression should not be construed as promoting communal disharmony. Having personally known Kangana I can firmly say that she is not against any religion.(sic)”
Kangana is currently in her hometown Manali, where her family is busy with the upcoming wedding of her brother Aksht.
